SAT 04 JUNE – ‘Delicatessen’ (15) Anniversary Special

A double anniversary delight.

For this years 10th Anniversary of the Orkney Wine Festival, we’re screening the bizarrely brilliant ‘DELICATESSEN’ for it’s 25th anniversary.

Kirkness & Gorie, Orkney’s oldest delicatessen (founded 1859,) invites you to celebrate the 25th anniversary of DELICATESSEN, at an evening of wine, cheese and film.

Doors open 7 pm. Film starts 8 pm.

£5 tickets in advance

Your ticket gets you a generous helping of the finest French cheeses and traditional accompaniments, plus a slice or two of French saucisson if you like that kind of thing.  In addition, it gives you access to STRANGELY DELICIOUS, our pop-up wine bar, with a range of top-notch, film-friendly French wines to choose from.  Not at wine-bar prices, NON!  Not even at retail prices.  No, tonight we’re offering you glasses and bottles of wine at 10% less than standard retail prices.  So you can empty a bottle without emptying your wallet.

We’re limiting this event to 80 tickets, so make sure you get yours in good time.

DELICATESSENPOSTER

 

DELICATESSEN (15)

This zany, startling and clever debut film from co-directors Jean-Pierre Junet and Marc Caro gained cult satus, and saw future productions City Of Lost Children and Amelie cement their reputation as leading exemplars in their profession.

A post-apocalyptic future becomes the setting for pitch black humor in this visually intricate French comedy. This dark tale is played out in a brilliantly designed, glorious surreal alternate world reminiscent of the works of director Terry Gilliam, who co-presented the film’s American release. Like Gilliam, co-directors Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro hail from an animation background, and have a fondness for extravagant visuals, absurdist plot twists, sharp satire with broad slapstick and wicked sense of humor.
